Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga's Reviews where you can share books obtained via the bookstore, the library, online, through trade, borrowed from friends, gifted and/or received for review that you're adding to your shelf.
Be warned. There might be a ton. I may, or might not have gone a little overboard with buying books!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone & Days of Blood & Starlight by Lani Taylor
I Bought this in a bundled deal, two for one at Target.
Partials by Dan Wells & Grave Minder by Melissa Marr, I got at a cheap bookstore for $5 each.
I wrapped all FOUR books up and gave them to myself for christmas! Ha. Is that wrong?
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda & The Blood Countess by Tara Moss.
I had already read The Hunt last year as an ARC, but loved it so much that I knew I wanted to own it. And The Blood Countess. I was given the 3rd book a while back to review, but since I hadn't read the first two, I couldn't yet. So I finally got around to buying the first one.
Endless by Jessica Shirvington & The Diviners by Libbra Bray
Again, I have already read Endless. But I gave it to my co-blogger, and friend April, since she likes to have the Australian versions, and so I bought myself a copy.
I have heard so much about the Diviners that I thought I should get it and check it out for myself. It does sound pretty awesome.
Covet by Melissa Darnell, The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken & The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore.
Again, like the above, I had already read Covet & The Rise of Nine as ARCs, but I knew I planned om buying the paperbacks for myself since I own the previous books in each series.
I remember Darkest Minds had been on my to read list, and sounds amazing, so there was no question on whether or not I'd be getting that one.
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood, Forsaken by Lisa M Stasse & Taken at Dusk by C.C Hunter.
I've been meaning to get all three of these. Especially Born Wicked. I have heard so much about it, but kept waiting until I could find it at a cheaper place, and since I couldn't.. I decided, I would go ahead and buy it at the bookstore --- even if I was paying like $16.. which is a normal paperback price when it comes to bookstores here in Australia.
And last, but not least, THE HOST -- Official Illustrated movie companion! I could not resist getting this after flipping through the gorgeous pictures inside.
That was it for me, how did everyone else fan out this christmas?
